Re: xfig(1) in Debian 8/Jessie




Hi Henrique. The problem was created by the Xfig 3.2 patchlevel 5b to
5c patchlevel, and has been fixed in 3.2.6, according to the xfig site
at sourceforge.

Might be a good idea to fix it in the repositories and updates because
of application/x-xfig in ~/.mailcap vulnerabilities. (The problem
doesn't effect Debian 7/Wheezy, or before, just Jessie and perhaps
Stretch.)

    Thanks,

    John
